I finally became annoyed at about 2AM and decided to take the easy way out.

If you *know* (think?) you have everything you need, simply go into your
xmltv src directory, open up Makefile.PL, head to line 57:

my %prereqs
  = (
     'LWP' => 0,
     'XML::Twig' => 0,
     'Date::Manip' => 5.4,
     'XML::Writer' => 0,


Yank line 60 ('XML::Twig'). Save... ; perl Makefile.PL ; watch errors for
Date::Manip (UTF problems, seems to be related to the version of perl they
are using in RH 8.0?.. search google.).

make ; make install


This will probably break something, for someone, but it works for me. YMMV!
